WalMart Solar to Produce 20 Million kWh/yr


My eyes are wide... WalMart just announced that they're creating one of the 10 largest solar power projects in America and www.tevaka.com they're calling it "part of a pilot project." I guess these guys don't sweat the small stuff. If this is www.aumm.nl just a portion of order tramadol without prescription their pilot project, I can't imagine what they might be planning down the www.wowgraphicdesigns.com road.

A couple months ago WalMart made a bit of a splash when it started actively searching for companies who might be able to help them install solar projects on hundreds of store roofs across the country. Their request for proposal included the possibility for over 300 solar roofs in seven states.

We got a bit skeptical when the story disappeared for a few months, but now it's back, and it's real. WalMart has accepted proposals from SunPower, BP Solar and SunEdison. These three companies will be installing solar projects on 22 WalMart stores in Hawaii and California.

They are certainly holding back from their original 300 roof proposal, we assume because they're waiting for the economics to make more sense, but 22 solar roofs is still a gigantic project. This shows a good deal more commitment solar power than simple PR. The project will produce more than 20 million KWh per year, and will probably have a maximum output of over 10 megawatts making it the largest private solar installation in the US, about six times larger than Google's gigantic solar roof.

Kudo's if they follow through
written by PeakVT, May 09, 2007
Obviously MallWart will still be a net bad player if they actually install solar on their roofs, but it could encourge a lot of other retailers to follow suit. Big-box retail outlets in sunny states must have huge mid-afternoon electrical loads due to cheapest viagra prices licensed pharmacies A/C compressors running flat-out trying to keep customers cool, and solar is a natural fit for that kind of load profile.

Number of Panels
written by Hank, May 09, 2007
Generally fake panels are only used when aesthetics are involved, and since no one cares what the www.umlauf.de top of we recommend buy real viagra online a wal-mart story looks like, there won't be any fakes. Of course, The number of panels is kinda irrelevant. What matters is the energy output...it it will be significant.
